Diesel is by a new to me author, Piper Malone. The story starts out with Elliot being forced to check out a HOT new club in NYC and meet with the club owner, Diesel. Assuming Diesel is a 'he', Elliot is stunned at their first meeting. Diesel keeps herself at arm's length from anyone wanting to get too close. However, Elliot is one hot male specimen and D can't get him out of her mind.
This book has all the potential to be an amazing story! The writing is really great and has just enough details without being too much. The sexual tension between Elliot and Diesel is HOT, HOT, HOT!! Unfortunately, the story fell flat at the end and became predictable. The conflict between them was so out of character for Elliot and could have been resolved if he listened. His reaction to the situation was contradictory to how he acted throughout the rest of the story. It ended the way I assumed it would and didn't wow me.
